We are delighted to offer this exceptionally rare Humber Pullman Laundaulette onto the market. There are only a handful of this type still in existence. The car was despatched from the factory on the 19th October 1931 to Rossleigh, Edinburgh. Documentation in the history from a Humber motoring Historian states the car is actually a 1932 model and is believed to have left the factory in its current colours of Royal Blue over Black. The Humber spent most of its life in Scotland, spending 50 years with the same family. The Humber also comes with its original Hackney Carriage 8 seats plaque as it was used to transport holiday guests from Granton Station to Aviemore Resort in Scotland. Having spent its entire life in Scotland, the most recent owner in Enfield bought the Humber in 1999 and has covered 6500 miles in the car over the past 18 years and the Humber arrives with us in impressive mechanical order, beautifully presented body and a totally original, unrestored interior. Whilst the Humber retainsa great deal of originality, it was subject of some restoration work in 1992. Over 10,000 was spent on removing all exterior fittings and interior trim and seats, stripping the complete vehicle down to bare metal and carrying our repairs as necessary to the metal work. All dents were removed and then the Humber was completely re-painted in its original colour scheme. New glass was fitted to all four doors, any corroded woodwork was replaced and a new exhaust system was also fitted. The Humber was then built back up, presenting in first class condition. In 2000, six months after changing hands and moving to Enfield, a programme of mechanical re-commissioning work was carried out. Brake shoes were sent for re-lining, king pins were stripped down, carefully repaired with some new machining and new thrust bearings. New bushes were made and fitted to the damper link arms, springs were removed and stripped down, then sandblasted, re-assembled and greased up with new bushes fitted, the fuel tank wasflushed out, cleaned and re-painted, the sender unit freed off and tested, a new cross shaft was machined with new pins, nuts, spacers and washers and the engine was treated to an oil change and filter, HT leads and condenser replaced. Plugs were cleaned, inlet and exhaust tappets set and timing also set. The carburettor was stripped and new jets fitted, the starter motor rebuilt and the Humber was then MOT test and ready for use. A notebook accompanies the car details all 6500 miles with the last owner, and it also documents various jobs such as replacing tyres and battery when necessary. The only significant expenditure since the re-commissioning work in 2000 was over 4500 of work in 2011/2012. This work included a further brake overhaul and various mechanical and electrical work. With steady use since then, the Humber has arrived with us in lovely order and does drive very well. Its 3.5 six cylinder engine runs beautifully and offers impressive performance. The gearbox feels strong, changesnicely and the Humber rides, steers and brakes well. Confidence can be taken from the previous owners regular use and the car has a strong, robust feel and is most certainly very usable. The Humber starts reliably, drives beautifully and its powerful engine means it can be driven comfortably for longer distance touring. SN 5437 is a large, impressive motor car and with sharp, deep paintwork and bright chrome it does present incredibly well. It's a beautiful looking car and whilst some may prefer a brand new looking interior, our car has a wonderful patina and charm with its original seating still in remarkably good order. The carpeted section of the lower door cards are quite worn but it does represent 80 years of history and cosmetic work to the trim can be carried out if necessary. The glass chauffeur patrician is still in place functioning correctly and whilst many, many years ago the Laundaulette style hood was covered over externally at the rear of the car, the original interior headlining andhandles etc are all still in place so we are happy to explore the option of re-instating this so rear passengers can have open top motoring. Humber's original sales brochure stated the car combines simple dignity of appearance with interior roominess and charm. The folding head is particularly neatly constructed, the hinged supports being concealed in the roof itself. This is a wonderful, rare piece of motoring history and it offers a very unique opportunity. Please enquire for the further details. Price: 34,995

This exceptionally well presented, rare Packard 22nd Series Six Sedan was built in RHD format on the 24th February 1948 at the Packard Motor Companies Factory in Detroit, USA and then shipped to Cape Town, South Africa where it was first registered. The car comes with the most magnificent, detailed, comprehensive history and has arrived with us beautifully restored having had 31,000 spent since 2009. 164 XUT has led a fascinating life and comes with a packed history file of interesting stories and letters covering almost its entire life. The car was first owned by a farmer, Mr Havenger, in Rhodesia who owned the Packard for around 20 years. The Packard was to be eventually used as a tractor and by June 1968 it was found in an abandoned state and derelict in a Tobacco farm field. The car was discovered by Adrian Trebicki who negotiated to buy the car by trading a crate of beer. A memo notebook from 1968 is with the car detailing new parts and work being carried out to the car and it was this ownerwho kept the car for over 40 years, eventually shipping the car to UK as he career led him here in the 1980's. The new owner restored the Packard in Rhodesia during the late 1960's and put the car back in regular use, even touring South Africa at one stage. A comprehensive file of notes and invoices from the late 1960's and early 1970's is with the car. The long term second owner moved away from Rhodesia to work in Ghana during 1976, driving the car from Rhodesia to his parents in Pretoria, South Africa. The fascinating history file still retains letters from the Exchange Control Department at Standard Bank in Rhodesia to the owner's parents as the Packard had not been exported correctly back into South Africa, just driven over the border from Rhodesia and left at his parents' property. Eventually, after several months of correspondence the issue was dealt with. There are even letters from the owner Adrian to his parents from Ghana in the file, along with his International Driving Permit that isstamped as 'not valid' for Ghana. In 1981 Adrian Trebicki moved away from Ghana to work for Leyland Trucks in the UK and shipped the Packard over from his parents in Pretoria. Even this led to a story, with welding bottles on the ship falling and damaging the cars roof. A whole file of paperwork details the saga on its arrival in the UK. On the 19th March 1981 the car was MOT tested by Naylors Motor Sales (Leyland) Ltd in Leyland, Preston with a recorded mileage of 31871 and UK registered for the first time. The paperwork suggests this was the correct mileage from new. Insurance paperwork throughout the 1980's and 1990's is with the Packard but the car was unused throughout this period. In 2009, after 41 years, the Packard changed hands, selling to an architect in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Having been unused since its arrival and MOT test in the UK, the Packard needed restoration and the new owner then spent 31,000 taking the car to a beautiful standard. Having covered around 200 miles since MOT in1981, the Packard was put back on the road and MOT tested at 32084 miles 28 years later in 2009. Whilst the Packard was re-commissioned and MOT tested in 2009, the actual major restoration lasted over three years. Invoices, photographs and a six page detailed report itemises all work carried out. The body required major restoration and a full re-paint, all brightwork was removed and sent for re-chroming, rubbers replaced, new tyres fitted, the upholstery was beautifully re-trimmed, all gauges and dials overhauled, and electrics renewed as required. The Packard was mechanically overhauled and since then has been beautifully maintained, carefully looked after and has covered less than 1000 miles since completion of the major restoration. 164 XUT has now arrived with us in beautiful condition with stunning paintwork, a lovely straight restored bodyshell and the attention to detail is evident with its beautifully presented interior and clean engine bay. The Packard arrives with us in strong mechanicalorder, its six cylinder engine is in excellent order, the column change gearbox a delight to use and the Packard handles and brakes well and is lovely to cruise in. This really must have one of the most comprehensive history files we have seen, the car has a real story and it's interesting to read how a family cherished and really loved this car for most of its life. Adding to the many files and several boxes of invoices, letters, correspondence, notes, notebooks, e-mail dialogues and technical notes is a beautiful original Packard Service Manual for both body and chassis, original parts catalogue, handbooks, data sheets, brochures and much more. This is a special car and it must be preserved, enjoyed and cherished. There probably isn't another one in the World like this. Price: 29,995

This is an exceptional, rare and significant car that comes with great provenance. Our Aston Martin Virage Volante factory Wide body was first owned and first registered by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd with their very own factory display plate 'AM V8'. Aston Martin Works confirm in writing this car was first owned Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd presumably for marketing and display purposes given internal invoices on file for valeting is charged out to the Marketing Department. We know the registration mark 'AM V8' was used at the time for factory 'showcase' demonstrators at various European Motor Shows and this car was used to showcase the new factory Widebody specification that was available for a further cost of in the region of 60,000. Owners of these cars could return their cars to the factory for this very special upgrade but naturally it is the genuine factory original Widebody cars that are the more desirable and valuable. Only 26 factory built Widebody cars were ever produced and further provenancewith this car is in the fact that it is the first vehicle built with the improved specification and this is shown in the parts manual where this car, chassis number 60193 is referred to at the top of some pages as the start point of where specification changed. Not only does this car hold exceptional provenance, it has only covered a genuine 24,000 miles from new and comes with its original handbooks and service book, spare keys, letter from Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd confirming warranty repairs and mileages in the cars early life, the majority of main dealer receipts and invoices and even a compliment slip to the last owner from the Factory Master Technician who conducted the original PDI. The certificate of ownership confirms the car was registered new 'AM V8', owned by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Newport Pagnell and on the 12th January 1995 the car was PDI inspected by G.Higgs. The first service was conducted on the 20th February 1995 by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell where it has beenmaintained for most of its life. The service book has been stamped at Newport Pagnell at 4730, 5495, 6567, 7211, 8389, 10598, 12908, 13991, 14624 and at 15293 miles Aston Martin HWM Walton on Thames serviced the car. The Aston Martin was back with the Works at Newport Pagnell at 18022, 18877, 19797 and 20690 miles meaning the car had fifteen Aston Martin main dealer services in the first 20,000 or so miles, fourteen of those being with Aston Martin Works. More recently, in 2017 at 22912 miles the Aston Martin had over 10,000 spent with prominent Aston Martin classic specialists in the South of England. This included a rebuilt engine ECU, re-conditioned alternator, new assembly cooling fans and various re-commissioning. The most recent service was carried out at 23458 miles and the car has arrived with us in exceptional condition. This Aston Martin Virage Volante is finished in its correct colour of British Racing Green and the body and paintwork are presented in beautiful condition. The originalGreen piped Parchment leather is stunning as expected with such a low mileage and it's no surprise the car has won some recent show events with its last owner. The Black mohair hood is in excellent order and this fantastic, unique factory car has enormous presence and with its detailed engine bay and remarkably clean underbody there is no doubt this is a car for the discerning buyer/collector. Our Virage Volante 6.3 Cosmetic is truly outstanding in every respect and on the road the car is sensational with impressive performance, acceleration, handling with real quality, luxury and comfort. This is a very special car to own and is somewhat unrepeatable. Price: 139,995

This is a superb driving, ultra-usable and very genuine UK supplied, matching numbers Jaguar E-Type Roadster that's still in its original factory colours of Willow Green with Black leather upholstery. OOV 996G was manufactured on the 28th October 1968 and supplied new by Birmingham dealer P J Evans and comes with an impressive history dating back to the mid 1970's. The Jaguar was in the hands of a Sutton Coldfield based antiques dealer during the early 1970's and in 1975 sold to a Staffordshire based owner who kept the E-Type for 19 years. In 1994, the E-Type was sold by the E-Type Centre to a Jaguar enthusiast in Wakefield and after 22 years of ownership the car was sold to the most recent owner, a retired motor engineer who lived just a few streets away. This very genuine original car has had just three owners in 44 years and has been driven over to us faultlessly from West Yorkshire. When the E-Type was purchased by its Staffordshire based owner in 1975, the E-Type had covered 63,000 miles injust seven years. In 1979 the car was subject of substantial restoration work to include a new bonnet, new underbody floor pans, new sills, a complete re-paint in the cars original colour (invoice from 1979 on file), re-trim as per original, renewed chrome work and during the early 1980's was treated to an engine rebuild with the mileage at 80,000 by this point. A large file of Martin Robey invoices are on file throughout the 1980's and the engine rebuild was completed by Autosprint Racing Engines in Birmingham. The engine was treated to new pistons, main and big end bearings, re-ground crankshaft, performance camshaft, cam bearings, cam followers, new valve guides, lightened flywheel, new oil pump and timing chain. Remarkably, whilst maintaining regular but very low usage, the E-Type has only covered 8000 miles since its mid 1980's engine rebuild, all verified in the vehicle history file. From 1994 to 2016 with its next owner, the E-Type covered 5000 miles with MOT's and tax discs on file showingthe car was in annual use. Over this period the car was subject of regular expenditure with invoices on file for upkeep and maintenance. In 1994 the E-Type was treated to further bodywork, wheel arches were taken back to bare metal and treated to repairs and paintwork as necessary. Invoices throughout the 1990's detail various mechanical work to the braking, suspension, steering, electric and fuel system and in 2008 The Hutson Motor Company rebuilt the carburettors, fitted new steering rack mountings, fitted a new fuel pump and replaced the bonnet struts. In 2015 shortly before selling the car after 22 years of ownership, over 2000 was spent on new engine mountings, new fulcrum shaft bearings, new rear hub inner seals, various new ignition items, new filters, new choke and speedo cables. In 2016 the most recent owner purchased the E-Type and has covered around 1000 faultless miles in the car. As a retired motor engineer with ramp facilities at home, the car was treated to a thorough going over toinclude removal of the rear subframe cage which was subsequently rebuilt with new brakes and suspension springs. OOV 996G has driven over 60 miles to us and performed faultlessly. The engine is incredibly strong and fit, it holds excellent oil pressure, is very impressive under load offering brilliant performance and cooling remains correct. The E-Type sat for sometime in York traffic on route to us and remained at correct temperature. The E-Type holds the road superbly, braking is sharp and efficient, and the car offers a fabulous driving experience. OOV 996G presents very well and as an honest original car. Paintwork is now over 30 years old and has a lovely deep shine and patina. The bodywork is of a very good standard and the various blemishes and imperfections really highlight what an honest, older restoration this really is. The bonnet is structurally outstanding and the 1994 waxoyl is still in place, still doing its job. This is a really solid, straight and usable car and is a great basisfor improvement but also ideal for putting into immediate regular use or long distance touring. The hood is excellent, the chrome work and chrome wire wheels are superb and the interior having been last trimmed in the 1970's looks nicely aged, honest and naturally has a true patina. All the gauges work, the car appears very correct and it most certainly will not disappoint if looking for a usable, genuine UK E-Type. This really is a great buy; its in a superb rare period colour, it drives beautifully, it comes with excellent provenance, history, matching numbers and is offered onto the market a very sensible price.

This top class Jaguar E-Type Series II FHC is a matching numbers car still finished in its original colour of Regency Red. The car was manufactured on the 26th March 1969 and has covered 83,000 miles from new with a well-documented history. The original service book accompanies the car detailing Resnik Motors Inc in Manchester, New Hampton supplying the car to its first owner, Dr W T Belger. A comprehensive US 1980's history also companies the E-Type and in 1989 the car was purchased by a private owner in Buckinghamshire who registered the car in the UK for the first time. The E-Type was subject of a RHD conversion and some restoration work on initial arrival in the UK and it was in regular use right throughout the 1990's and 2000's covering 10,000 miles. In 2011 the E-Type changed hands and was then subject of a two year rebuild, overseen by E-Type expert and Club Technical Director Ken Jenkins. The car was completely dismantled and treated to an engine rebuild (UK spec with high compressionpistons) gearbox rebuild and rear axle overhaul and conversion to UK spec, 3.07:1. Triple HD8 SU carburettors were rebuilt and fitted to the car, the Koni shock absorbers were re-used and the handling and grip further enhanced by Aston Martin DB6 chrome wire wheels with 215-65-15 tyres. All mechanical components were replaced or re-conditioned and the car finished to an exceptionally high standard. Whilst the body was stripped down, it was taken on by a Rolls Royce painter for preparation and paint finish and the interior was completely re-trimmed in Barley. Invoices for the work are in the history file, including the engine rebuild by Ken Jenkins. Since completion of this major restoration, the E-Type has only covered 4000 miles and is in truly exceptional condition. The bodywork is first class with excellent panel gaps and no corrosion issues. The paint finish gleams, chrome work is stunning and the re-trimmed upholstery still looks new, as do the DB6 chrome wires. The underside is top class, theengine bay beautifully detailed and clean, the spare wheel well perfect. On the road RRX 999H is outstanding with a gorgeous, fit engine holding excellent oil pressure and delivering impressive performance. The all syncro four speed gearbox is effortless to use with lovely smooth changes and the rebuilt UK rear axle is just perfect. The E-Type handles with perfection and the brakes are super efficient. The drive is quite simply sublime and is a truly superb experience. RRX 999H is a first class example with matching numbers, is finished in arguably one of the nicest colour combinations and has an exceptional bodyshell, stunning paintwork and trim. This is something very special and has been dismantled and rebuilt to the highest of standards. Price: 99,995

This is a matching numbers left hand drive, non-sunroof very early SC, originally supplied to Japan and by chassis number is the 10th 911 officially imported there back in 1978, spending the majority of its life in the land of the rising sun before coming over to the UK in 2014. Finished in its original Guards Red and complemented by a set of uber rare RUF Speedline wheels, recently refinished in satin black to compliment the dark trim elsewhere on the car, this really is a great looking 911. It presents beautifully, with factory correct panel gaps and lovely paint that positively pops in the sunlight. The car carries a light feel and so the foglamps have been removed, as have the painted headlight rims, though these remain with the car and are in excellent condition. Fitted with a lightweight interior in black, including door cards, perforated corduroy Recaro style seats (at a cost of almost 3000) and a rare RUF leather bound steering wheel, whilst the remainder of the interior is delightfullyfactory original and in excellent order, with no cracked or warped plastics to be seen and everything working just as it did 41 years ago. Loved by the current custodian for 2 years, having been purchased from a Porsche specialist back in June 2017, car has been further improved with a series of small cosmetic jobs including a new front bumper set and all rubbers, repainted rear valance, rear deck and bootlid in addition to those restored Speedlines. A stickler for period detail, a correct set of 1970's raised digit number plates have been fitted too. Whilst all this makes for great reading, what makes this car really special is its structural integrity. Having lived in a completely salt free environment for most of its life, it has never had the opportunity to corrode from the bottom up, as most 911's do and when we first put it up on our ramps, we were amazed to see all of the original factory underseal completely intact; something the last owner managed to preserve for posterity with a recentapplication of clear wax. In the last 2 years the car has been very lightly used with just over 1500 km's covered, so the total mileage stands at 145,000 km's since new, which equates to just over 90,000 miles in 41 years. Since 2017, the 911 has been serviced 3 times, so it's absolutely on the button and there's a comprehensive history folder that stands testament to the care it's received over the years. From a mechanical standpoint, the car is completely standard, with the exception of a set of stainless SSI's which make a lovely noise, popping purposefully on the overrun and adding a useful power boost to around 190bhp. Unsurprisingly, it drives beautifully, just as an original well sorted 911 should; it's highly communicative, responding to the lightest of driver inputs. We love cars like this - that have never been apart, bodged and then 'restored', either properly or otherwise; there's an old adage that they're only original once and this is such a car. It still carries its original factoryfloor mats and the 'Mizwa' supplying dealer sticker is still in the rear 'screen - just lovely!; We've never seen a 911 of this age in such an exceptionally correct state of preservation and the last owner sold the car with a genuinely heavy heart in order to fund the purchase of a classic Range Rover. He knows that he'll struggle to find another 911 that's as delightful. This is a very special 911 in a perfect specification - a car to cherish. Available at 52995; if you're looking for a 'proper' matching numbers 911 with an interesting history that really is as good underneath as it is on top, you will struggle to find a better example with this level of originality this side of 60k, if perhaps at all.
